In 1977 he moves to Milan: he deals mostly with German Neo-Expressionist artists (Georg Baselitz, Jorg Immendorf, A.R. Penck, Sigmar Polke), in particular with Neo-Fauves (Karl Hörst Hödicke, Bernd Köberling, Rainer Fetting, Helmut Middendorf, Bernd Zimmer), with Nuovi Ordinatori (Hermann Albert), and with the greatest representative of Art Brut Jean Dubuffet. He is the first one in Italy to deal with artists such as Robert Longo, David Salle, Donald Baechler, Gerard Garouste, Martin Disler and Anselm Stalder. Between the end of the 1980's and the beginning of the 1990's, he features Viennese Actionism (Arnulf Rainer, Hermann Nitsch, Günter Brus), Austrian Neo-Expressionism (Maria Lassnig, Siegfried Anzinger), as well as the Italian artists of Nuova Scuola Romana (Piero Pizzi Cannella, Nunzio). Along the 1990's he deals mainly with figurative painting, which he defines as Neo-Iconic (Daniele Galliano, Cristiano Pintaldi, Pierluigi Pusole, Federico Guida, Nicky Hoberman, Ryan Mendoza, Santiago Ydáñez, Bas Meerman, Javier Garcerà, Francesco De Grandi, Till Freiwald, Maja Vukoje, Frank Bauer).
In 2000 the gallery Studio d'Arte Cannaviello moves to a new space in Via Stoppani 15, Milan, opening with a performance by Hermann Nitsch.
